The Goodwin Collaboration team brings over 15 years of experience helping to solve health, governance, education, technology, conservation, human rights, microfinance and water problems. Here is some of our current and recent work for government, NGO and business organisations.
World Health Organization: GC is working with a University of Sydney team to design and produce a WHO training curriculum to enhance the health communications capacities of senior public health directors, managers and staff in government agencies across the developing world.
Australian National Preventive Health Agency: GC advised ANPHA on a research-driven strategy and program to address alcohol harm among young people through social media, social marketing and behaviour change communications.
Asian Development Bank: GC contributed to a research-driven governance project to improve knowledge of the ADB’s Accountability Mechanism in the Pacific, including providing people affected by development projects with information on how best to address their issues. The project included research on socio-political institutions and systems, ways to reach ethnically and geographically diverse communities and development of a strategic plan for effective communications.
Fantastic Mom: a program to improve hygiene and sanitation practices in Indonesia, managed by Nicholas Goodwin (with Ogilvy) for KuIS, a national health coalition, and Johns Hopkins CCP with funding from USAID. Fantastic Mom engaged mothers and caregivers through local media and festivals supported by partnerships with religious groups, business and the community. The results included an increase in handwashing with soap from 35% to 56%.
Ogilvy Public Relations: GC advises the Ogilvy network of agencies on social marketing, international development and other communications initiatives. This includes strategy, capacity building, proposals, partnerships and thought leadership across their global network.
International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua): GC developed a tool to guide ISQua on how to use social media to drive membership and boost participation in their health issue communities hosted by the new portal ‘ISQua Knowledge’.
GC researched and produced a report on the University of Sydney’s international development, research and training initiatives in Southeast Asia with government, multilateral, private sector and NGO partners, including advising University management on issues to strengthen the University as a world centre in research and education.
